Human Dignity within Clinical Practice

Date: February 12 - 13, 2010

Organizers: Jan C. Joerden (Frankfurt (Oder)), Eric Hilgendorf (Würzburg), Felix Thiele (Bad Neuenahr-Ahrweiler)

The workshop dealt with theoretical basics of the idea of human dignity and its practical application in the context of Clinical Medicine. Issues of clinical ethics in general as well as individual cases of acute medicine, neonatology, palliative medicine, care, geriatrics and psychiatry have been discussed during the interdisciplinary symposium. Due to the missing connection between theory and practice, the participants from the fields of medicine, law and philosophy tried to find common starting points in the definition of human dignity. Questions such as the following have dominated the course of discussion: How can the principle of care and the right to autonomy be brought together? Does the right to life rival the right to physical integrity in cases of supporting premature infants? Are values of life quality and cost-benefit considerations acceptable in decisions of reanimating patients?
